Inspirations from Kay Wood DTM Club Growth Director

Imagine a world where all countries sit side by side and talk. Not about border disputes or commodities but what they dream of achieving. Picture a world with acceptance in every smile and encouragement in every word.

This world existed at the recent Toastmasters Convention and regardless of the countries of origin, all conflicts disappeared and we were all just Toastmasters.

Our Aussie contingent was small but our pride immense as District Director Nick Rinaldi carried out flag into the Opening Ceremony in Denver. How could we not be inspired by such an event!

My vision is to see as many D70 members “Parlons à Paris”, standing under the Australian flag in acknowledgement of winning a Smedley Distinguished Award. What better place to attend a Convention than Paris in August!

I will be launching a Proud in Paris Campaign I with details on the D70 website soon.

I also had the inspiration for a second idea in my mission to support Clubs with low numbers. So I will be launching the BOSS Team at the next DEC Meeting on 21st September. Look out for further details.
